Tasty Cabbage Rice – Instant Pot

Cabbage Rice is a simple and tasty, vegan rice dish that is loaded with vitamins from cabbage and has just right heat from fresh ginger and green chilies.

This is one of my mom’s newest recipe that I got to taste and learn when she visited me this summer. When she first made it on the stove-top, I was not sure if it would be a good recipe for Instant Pot. As, this recipe does not use a lot of water.

So decided to use it up to make some ‘garam-garam’ parathas. The best way for me to chop cabbage is to mince it food processor.
